Seventy-seven percent of educators say they are either poorly prepared or not prepared at all to teach students how to be successful in an AI-powered world, according to a recent EdWeek Research Center survey. This is a troubling number when you consider the rapid advances in this technology and its unimaginable potential to alter everything we do. How can educators ready themselves and their students for what this future could bring? Similarly, reading instruction has had its own challenges. It’s been a fiery instructional battleground for decades, but do we truly understand what is at the root of this persistent and emotional debate? The answers to these questions could help us solve some of education’s biggest instructional challenges today.

Join the conversation as experts in the field explore these instructional pain points and offer game-changing guidance for K-12 leaders and educators.
